Little Middle Folk School

Program Information

Every summer the Folk School opens its doors to young folks ages 7-17 for Little/Middle Folk School, an opportunity for youths to discover Appalachian culture and to take part in hand-on programs in dozens of arts and crafts. Little/Middle is scheduled for June 20-26, 2021.

Participants are divided into two groups. "Littles" are rising second-graders to rising sixth-graders, and "Middles" are rising seventh-graders to rising twelfth-graders (minimum age 11). Littles take 4 classes and Middles take 2 classes out of nearly 30 youth classes.

Applications and a preview of classes for Little/Middle 2021 will be available in April on this page.

Space is limited and we usually reach capacity with a waitlist. We recommend that you sign up as soon as possible once applications are open.

Class begins at 9:05 am and ends at 3:30 pm. Local students must be picked up no later than 4:30 pm. No aftercare program is available.

Tuition for Little/Middle is $150 per child. Housing and meals are not included. If housing and meals are desired for a student, they are required to be accompanied by an adult.

A deposit of $30 is required in order to complete the online application. If accepted, the $30 will be deducted from the tuition balance due. If you are not accepted, you will be placed on a wait list. You may contact us at any time to remove yourself from the wait list and receive a full refund.

If accepted, you will receive a confirmation of acceptance from the Folk Schoo and a class schedule and materials list will be mailed at the end of April.

Little/Middle Cancellation Policy: If a student cancels before May 22, 2021, their registration fee will be refunded. No refunds will be made after May 22, 2021. If a student must be removed from the program due to a discipline problem, no refund will be given.


A limited number of Little/Middle scholarships are available based on financial need. Please contact the Programming Department for more information at 828-837-2775.
